In an effort to discuss news stories in a timely manner, I am finding I may need to add a blog post which is off my topic. For example, yesterday I discussed that Olympic athletes are ice bathing. I hope this doesn’t cause any confusion among my readers.
On Thursday and Saturday I talked about bubonic plague (a very old disease). We hear about old diseases which continue to make us ill. Despite our modern technology and all our medical knowledge, these diseases cause problems. The next few blog posts I will discuss a few old diseases that continue to cause us illness. Next time I will talk about whooping cough.
